A man who allegedly punched and kicked police officers after a reported incident in Carlton is due to appear in court.
Dale Lappin, 26, from Carlton, has been charged with two counts of assault by beating of an emergency worker and further counts of driving without insurance, driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence and failing to provide an specimen for analysis.
He has been remanded in custody to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.
Officers were called to reports of an intoxicated man who was acting aggressively during an alleged incident in Burton Road, Carlton, shortly after 8.45pm yesterday.
Police arrived and found a man sat in the driver’s seat of a car. During his arrest it’s alleged he punched one officer to their face and body and kicked another in the face. Thankfully both officers only suffered minor injuries and their welfare is being looked after.
Detective Inspector Stuart Temple, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We will not tolerate assaults on police officers and other frontline emergency workers. They should not have to suffer violence at any time nor as they continue to serve the public in these challenging times.
“The message is loud and clear that anyone who commits offences of this nature can expect to be dealt with swiftly and robustly.”
